Nominations are open for the YWCA 2019 Outstanding Woman Awards, recognizing women who demonstrate leadership or excellence in their community or workplace.

Each year, the YWCA of the Mohawk Valley honors women in several categories for their contributions to the community, including Entrepreneurs and Outstanding Youth, to honor young women, age 17 or under, who deserve recognition for their school-related or academic achievements, and/or volunteer and community contributions. A panel of judges reviews the nominations and selects the honorees.
